PLATTEVILLE, Wis., Sept. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Emmi Roth, a leading producer of specialty cheese, announced the completion of a solar panel installation at their Platteville, Wisconsin, plant. Initiated by an ongoing sustainability goal, Emmi Roth implemented 1,602 JA 330 watt panels on the roof of their cheese production facility.

The installation, managed by Eagle Point Solar out of Dubuque, Iowa, will reduce the company's carbon footprint by eliminating 14,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions from the environment – equal to saving 1.4 million gallons of gas, recycling 43,000 tons of waste or reducing coal usage by 13 million pounds.

"There are many companies trying to live up to sustainability goals," said Jim Pullen, General Manager at Eagle Point Solar. "Emmi Roth is part of a group that actually makes these goals a reality and invests in the environment."

The solar panels will supply 15 percent of the annual electric use of the cheese making plant.

"We want to have the lowest possible carbon footprint we could have in the industry," said Tim Omer, president and managing director at Emmi Roth. "This is another step in our commitment to focus on sustainable initiatives, so it's very exciting for all of us here at Emmi Roth."

The company also recently invested in a new anaerobic digester at the same location in Platteville, Wisconsin, in an effort to lower operational costs and remain environmentally responsible for the waste being produced during their cheese making operations. Their investment in the anaerobic technology will also allow them to utilize biogas as a source of energy in the future.

TEL AVIV, Israel, September 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Ellomay Capital Ltd. (NYSE :ELLO )(TASE: ELLO) ("Ellomay" or the "Company"), a renewable energy and power generator and developer of renewable energy and power projects in Europe and Israel, today announced that the project for construction of a photovoltaic plant with a peak capacity of 300 MW in the municipality of Talaván, Cáceres, Spain (the "Talasol Project"), promoted by Talasol Solar S.L. ("Talasol"), which the Company indirectly wholly owns was approved for financing under the European Fund for Strategic Investments ("EFSI" or the "Juncker Plan").

EFSI is an initiative launched jointly by the European Investment Bank ("EIB"), the European Investment Fund and the European Commission (together, the "EIB Group").  EFSI is a EUR 26 billion guarantee from the EU budget, complemented by a EUR 7.5 billion allocation of the EIB's own capital. The total amount of EUR 33.5 billion aims to unlock additional investment of at least EUR 500bn by 2020. EFSI is implemented by the EIB Group and projects supported by it are subject to usual EIB procedures.

As part of Talasol's process with EIB, EIB is required under its transparency policy (http://www.eib.org/infocentre/publications/all/eib-group-transparency-policy.htm) to publish the EFSI scoreboard of each EFSI project on its website.

The following is the summary project description as it appears on the EFSI operation scoreboard:

"The project comprises the financing, under a project finance scheme, of a solar photovoltaic (PV) plant with a total capacity of ca. 300 MWP. It also includes its overhead grid connection line of ca. 24 km in length and a voltage level of 400 kV and the related transforming substation. The project would be one of the first greenfield renewable energy projects to be financed in Spain following a wide-sector reform implemented in 2014 and amongst the first solar PV projects to be developed on a merchant basis and without any form of government support. In addition, the project will contribute to the EU Climate objectives and will help Spain meet its renewable target of 20% of primary energy generated by renewable sources by 2020. The project would be a major investment to be directly implemented by the promoter. The promoter acquired the project in an advanced development stage, and kept the staff originally involved in its development. In addition, the promoter has selected an owner's engineer to assist in the final development steps, including the tendering process for the Engineering, Procure and Construct (EPC) contract. An experienced EPC contractor has been appointed, and technology from reputable suppliers has been selected - including for PV panels, inverters, single-axis trackers, main transformers, etc. The project has the highest possible score in terms of contribution to EU policy, being eligible within Higher Priority Areas for projects inside the EU, fully accountable towards Climate Action objectives and located in a Cohesion region."

The continued development of the Talasol Project is subject to risks and uncertainties, including with respect to the occurrence of the conditions subsequent set forth in the Talasol share purchase agreement, and other conditions that are not entirely within the control of the Company or Talasol, as they include the issuance of regulatory approvals and the procurement of project financing on terms acceptable to Talasol. The Company may, in its sole discretion, decide not to pursue the Talasol Project in the event of changes in the market or other circumstances.

Electrabel, a subsidiary of ENGIE, announced today its decision to update the agenda of the scheduled revisions of the Tihange 2 and Tihange 3 nuclear units (see appendix page 3).

Thus, the restart dates of these two plants, as of today, are as follows:

  • Tihange 2: June 1, 2019 (previously planned on October 31, 2018)
  • Tihange 3: March 2, 2019 (previously planned on September 30, 2018)

These calendar revisions result in a shortfall of around 250 million euros at 2018 Group EBITDA and net recurring income Group share.

It should be noted that based on the announcement made today, the availability factor of Belgian nuclear plants is expected at 52% for 2018. For 2019 the availability factor is expected at 74%.

As 2018 is strongly impacted by unplanned nuclear outages, the Group's general management is fully committed to achieve the financial objectives set at the beginning of the year.

The action plan launched last June (renegotiation of contracts, generation portfolio optimization) combined with the very good performance in other businesses, offset to a large extent the impact from unplanned nuclear outages.

The Group thereby confirms the 2018 financial targets , on net recurring income Group share (at the low end of the 2.45 to 2.65 billion euros range), on net debt/Ebitda ratio and on dividend.

A conference call will be held on Monday, September 24 at 8:00 am Paris time.

Appendix: Electrabel press release of September 21, 2018 (French version)

These targets and indications exclude E&P and LNG contributions and assume average weather conditions in France, full pass through of supply costs in French regulated gas tariffs, unchanged significant Group accounting principles except for IFRS 9 & 15, no significant regulatory and macro-economic changes, commodity price assumptions based on market conditions as of December 31st, 2017 for the non-hedged part of the production, and average foreign exchange rates as follows for 2018: EUR /$: 1.22; EUR /BRL: 3.89 and do not consider significant impacts on disposals not already announced at Dec, 31st 2017.

Annexe : Communication presse Electrabel du 21 septembre 2018

Adaptation du planning de disponibilité de Tihange 2 et Tihange 3.

Electrabel a adapté ce 21 septembre la date de fin de révision de Tihange 2 et Tihange 3.

Pour rappel, Electrabel a constaté l’an dernier une dégradation du béton au niveau des plafonds des locaux de Doel 3 abritant les buses de sortie des soupapes d’échappements vapeurs dans le bâtiment annexé au bâtiment réacteur. Ces bâtiments, situés en zone non nucléaire, constituent pour les unités belges les plus récentes, une installation de sûreté supplémentaire qui n’est généralement pas présente dans les centrales des pays voisins. Ces bâtiments sont soumis à d’intense pression de vapeur qui dégradent au fil du temps les bétons.

Les travaux pour Tihange 3 et les analyses en cours pour Tihange 2 et Doel 4 (carottage, décapage, rassemblement des données,…) montrent que l’état des dégradations est différent d’un bâtiment à l’autre.

Les équipes travaillent actuellement au diagnostic et aux calculs qui doivent permettre de proposer des plans d’actions aux autorités.

Au regard des informations disponibles, Electrabel a revu la disponibilité des unités concernées par la problématique du béton :

Tihange 2 : indisponible jusqu’au 1er juin 2019

Tihange 3 : indisponible jusqu’au 2 mars 2019

Doel 4 : pas de changement ; indisponible jusqu’au 15 décembre 2018

Electrabel rappelle que ces dates sont les meilleures estimations au regard des informations connues à ce jour et pourront être modifiées en fonction des optimisations de planning, du résultat des inspections futures, de l’avancement des travaux et des injonctions des autorités.

Electrabel communique de façon transparente vers les marchés. Electrabel rappelle que ces évènements n’ont aucun impact sur la population, les travailleurs et l’environnement.

PETALUMA, Calif., Sept. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Alvarado Street Bakery, a cooperatively owned organic bakery that produces sprouted-grain breads for customers across the country, is launching a new campaign poking fun at Facebook for rejecting Facebook ads and posts promoting its new Sprouted Wheat Hemp & Hops Bread.

Seeing its ads and boosted posts were rejected by Facebook on the grounds that "Facebook doesn't allow the promotion of illegal drugs," Alvarado Street Bakery appealed to Facebook by clarifying that its products are made with organic hemp and hops, not illegal, hallucinogenic cannabis. While a few ads were eventually approved, some ads were still rejected — so Alvarado Street set out to poke the bear.

"With so many Russian trolls still lurking out there, it was surprising to see Facebook continually spending their energy rejecting our humble little organic bread," says Michael Girkout, president of Alvarado Street. "They made life a lot harder for our team to promote our new dizzyingly delicious new product, so we decided to have a little fun with our predicament."

The digital campaign will feature pseudo-political campaign tactics to both poke fun at Facebook in a lighthearted way while building awareness for the Hemp & Hops product. To let people know the company is intent on doing good and not just stirring up trouble, $1 of every Hemp & Hops sale from Sept.15 to Oct. 15 will be donated to Feeding America, the nonprofit national network of food banks.

Customers can find Alvarado Street Bakery's Sprouted Hemp & Hops Bread at their local grocery store and learn more about the campaign at AlvaradoStreetBakery.com/bread/hh.


For nearly 40 years, Alvarado Street has been making bread the right way — sourcing organic grains direct from family farms and sprouting them to life for healthier, more delicious breads. Solar-powered and worker-owned, Alvarado Street Bakery products can be found across the nation, as well as in select global markets. Learn more at www.alvaradostreetbakery.com.
